I don't collect dog tags in particular but will pick them up if I see them in antique stores.  I'm just now settling into my new home office and going through the ones I have and came across an interesting one. This one belongs to a George Balkam who enlisted in 1942 at the ripe old age of 37.  He unfortunately passed away in 1963 at the age of 58.  His headstone would indicate that he was in the 55th Armored Infantry Battalion as part of the 11th Armored Division.  I'm looking forward to trying to gather more information on his service in WW2.

 

Thanks for looking.
